    The Blob (Paramount, 1959). Italian 4 - Foglio (55" X 78").
    This was the first of three movies produced by Jack Harris and directed by Irwin S. Yeaworth Jr. and it remains their best collaboration. Taking an opposite strategy than AIP was taking at that time, they took enough money to make two low budget movies for a single picture that they could shoot in color and make as good as they could, and the results are actually pretty impressive. Steve McQueen gets his first big break as teenager Steve Andrews who first comes upon the gelatinous monster and proceeds to gather his gang to overcome it. One of the most amazing things produced for the publicity machine to sell the film is this wonderful Italian 4 folio with artwork by Sandro Simeoni. If only the U.S. campaign posters has taken their lead from this great artist but in fact, this poster is dated 1959, so was released in Italy the following year from its domestic release. Nonetheless, this great image is a must have for the science fiction collector. The poster had minor fold wear and slight separation and has been archivally conserved by placing on linen. The colors are vibrant and the poster is amazing in person. Very Fine on Linen.
